Card of the Day Reviews 



In the early part of the year, this card fueled a combo that sent shockwaves into every metagame.  The chilling part?  Most of the combo pieces went off just fine from the graveyard as well as in play-- killing the key players on sight accomplished nothing without a way to then remove them from the graveyard.  The existence of this combo, plus the card Faerie Macabre, is probably why Faeries rose to power: this monstrosity steamrolled everything else out of the metagame.

Wednesday - Reveillark

Talk about a versatile card for white decks. The ability to reanimate a couple of little creatures from your graveyard can be game-breaking in the right deck, and that's not even taking into account that in the meantime you get a 4/3 beater. Originally this guy was played in a combo deck with Mirror Entity and Body Double. Nowadays, however, he's being thrown into many different decks including white weenie and elemental decks. I wouldn't expect this guy's popularity to die down anytime soon, and for good reason.

In limited, the body is a little undersized for the price, but the ability can be handy, so I'd play it.

Constructed - 4.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 3.5

This is one of those cards that seems straightforward - until you look through your collection and notice just how many creatures it interacts with. Whether you like Riftwing Cloudskate and Mulldrifter, or Avalanche Riders and Fulminator Mage, or Eternal Witness and Spike Feeder, Reveillark can do it all. One of those rare cards where everyone can find something to like.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5



When this card came out I saw a lot, I mean alot of crazy stuff to do with this card. Have some ideas that were used for high level play, just did not what to explain how it work all of the time to some of our local players. One such use was with Maggot Carriers for multi-player fun, and even Bottle Gnomes...


Constructed: 4

Casual: 3

BeJose 3. Reveillark

Made a massive impact in vintage allowing HulkFlash a turn one kill. In standard it also dominated for a time. Fetching back utility creatures or just creatures to beat down with is always nice. In casual is a fun card to play with and, again, a limited bomb, fetching back creatures to win the race.

Constructed 3.5/5
Casual 3.5/5
Limited 4/5


Now here's a card that's not only great, but really fun for casual players as well. It basically turned blink into a powerhouse and is still good in other weenie decks as well. It's not only a 4/3 flyer for 5, which is pretty good for white, it also swings for 4 or brings back the cheap utility guys played early. Vengeant Lark, Bink, lark combo, so many great decks because of it. Good luck explaining the lark+body double combo in the casual crowd though. In limited creatures are what wins the game. I'd consider this a bomb in white.

Constructed: 4
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 4
